Beauty Candy Ipsy's October Bag. I was super excited to get this month's bag because October is my birthday month. Below is my review of this month's products and the broken down approximate cost of the entire bag. The bag is a $10.00 monthly subscription. Hopefully this post will help you decide if this is the beauty subscription for you and if the bag is well worth the money.
Doll 10 Highlighter- Shade Champagne 4.5 g --Creamy consistency that blends well when applied to clean skin. I tried it over top of liquid foundation and it moved the foundation making it uneven. When on Natural skin it leaves a beautiful glow to the cheekbones and cupids bow. Full Retail Price 10g/0.35oz $30.00 Making the one in the bag 4.5g estimate $13.00 ( more than the entire cost of the bag) Product is made in Canada
Figs and Rouge Hand Cream- Mango Mandarin 20ml Smells nice and light. Contains coco butter, natural anti oxidants and Algae extract. Also infused with glycerine and Ginseng to soften the hands. I did not find this oily and slick. The absorb time was pretty quick and left my hands feeling moisturized. This is intended for all skin types, I would personally not recommend it for eczema due to the fragrances that may upset the skin further. Paraben and Mineral Oil free, Made in the UK. Full retail price 20ml 3.95 Euros Equivalent to $5.60 CAN
City Color BE MATTE Lipstick - M7 Cappuccino 2.90g This was the only product in my bag I was disappointed about this month. To me this reminds me of the cheap NYC products at the drugstore. The colour is not the best with my skin tone and it has that cheap lipstick smell. I needed a gloss over top because the matte made me look ill. It does contain Mineral Oil. On the plus side though it claims to have Vitamin E oil and it's animal cruelty free :) Retail Value- $5.00 CAN
Model Co Volumeyes Mascara- Black Model Co is a well known Australian Cosmetic brand. I have never tried it before and let me tell you, where has it been all my life!! I really liked the plush brush that created plush voluminous lashes on me. The application was easy and clump free. Sad part is I believe they only ship within Australia so once I'm out I'm out :( This product is also Cruelty Free There was no size indicated but a full size retails for $20.00 Australian. The Australian dollar and Canadian dollar are equal right now.
Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths- 10 cloths. This product works wonders at removing makeup and oil. Easy quick fix when you skip washing your face because you are just too tired. You get a nice foam that forms and the plus is there is no water needed. You don't rinse it off and my skin never got irritated or acne breakouts. Ingredients include (White Willow Bark, Cucumber and CornFlower Extract, Coconut Oat and Amino Acids, Iceland Glacier Water,Icelandic Kelp) Celebrity's have raved about this product including Leighton Meester... Check out the website if you don't believe me. Full Retail Value 30 Cloths $15.00 . With the 10 cloths in the Ipsy bag $5.00
